BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment that’s just a bit persnickity. Here at Boulevard we have fermenter number seven, the black sheep of our cellar family. Ironically, when our brewers were experimenting with variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in that very vessel. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so it is. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.

38 IBU

Wonderful see through and light golden with a decent white head. Nose is yeasty and has slight pepper or spice. Nice flavor on this beer. You got the yeastiness and some slight clove. Good carbonation and a light feel. Good. I like this one. Holy smokes, I didn’t know this was so high in ABV.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light golden color with a frothy white head that lasts and leaves good lacing. Aroma has Belgian yeast, banana, apricot, and spices. Taste is initially sweet and fruity before the earthy malts and yeast kick in. Finish is long and bitter, with citrus hops.

12oz bottle bb 6/2/18 poured into an Orval chalice at fridge temp 8.5% ABV 38 IBU. The beer pours slightly hazy orange yellow with minimal off white head. The head recedes to a minimum paper thin, splotchy cap and thin ring. The aroma is Belgian yeast in the form of clove and a hint of banana. The taste starts with a touch of caramel and fruit, then the clove and banana reappear before the pleasantly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied, well carbonated and very dry. Overall, very good. This one will sneak up on you as there is no sign of the 8.5 % and it's quite enjoyable.
Recommended.

Bright dark straw color with moderate activity. Deep hazy with the yeast pour. Thick foamy light beige 2-3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with strong legs and good swirl reaction. Flavors of sweet grains like barley and wheat, lemon, orange, grapefruits, wild yeast, and floral hops. Slick and smooth medium body with crispy carbonation. Medium to strong strength finish, slightly tropical and clovey with dry hops and a balanced barnyard effect. Good freshness but slightly boozy yet understandable for the ABV. Nice balance and intensity, good complexity. Overall high quality craft.

Having a 12oz in a snifter that was gifted to me. Rich amber color with a bit of haze and a creamy finger head. Smells of citrus rind, banana peel, menthol, yeast, clove, and spice. Has a medium bodied feel along with a creamy texture. Flavors of honey, bitter citrus rind, banana, yeast, clove, pepper, and some of the menthol as you exhale. First farmhouse ale for me and now a fan!

This has to be one of my all time favorite beers. Anytime I see it I have to get at least a glass of it. It is a well balanced farmhouse ale. It is just funky enough, just sour enough, just malty enough. Nothing over the top. Just easy drinking with great nose and flavor.
